The combination of R&S BTC Broadcast Test Center and RFSpark RF automation unleashed the full capacity of R&S BTC, enabling test labs and TV/STB manufacturers to conduct compliance test in the most cost-effective manner.

“Since Rohde & Schwarz and VNTA set up the first digital TV receiver compliance test lab in Hanoi in 2015, we have been involved in the development of new test systems for QCVN.63 compliance test in Vietnam,” said Eric Li, regional manager for Rohde & Schwarz in Singapore.

Jia Xiaohui, general manager of Spark Systems, said RFSpark AutoTester picture quality engine can achieve accuracy with less than 0.1dB deviation against human tester for most DVB-T2 test cases.

RF Test automation supports regional and country test specifications, such as Nordig, D-Book, RED, China DTMB, ASEAN country level specifications, and with proof of coverage on the future development on test standards.

The complete system provides two working modes: a full automation by using AI powered video engine and a semi-automation that combines the instrument auto configuration and human tester subjective decision. Under full automation, the duration for a full round testing can be reduced up to 75 percent when working 24/7 continuously.
